What the M’s are saying about Eric Wedge

Courtesy of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, here’s what the Seattle Mariners’ GM said today upon announcing that Fort Wayne native Eric Wedge will be the M’s new manager:

“Eric brings the energy, passion and leadership that we think is important as we move forward,” Jack Zduriencik said, “and he has a track record of winning at the Major League and minor league levels.

“Eric has taken clubs to the playoffs and he has twice won 90 games at the Major League level. As a former Manager of the Year he has experience working with both veteran and younger players and as we move ahead we look forward to his contributions.”
